romney or not? >> i don't think that is how a campaign runner spends talking about for two weeks. african american and latino voters are very important. i want every american to vote. they are not voting for mitt romney. when you look at numbers like are you more favorable about this candidate the president and romney have parallel numbers among white voters. these huge margins are because overwhelmingly 78 to 4 african americans are saying less likely. if you are losing 100% of the vote it doesn't effect the ballot. so the difference in this poll is you have to look at the valid coalition compared to the numbers you are using from this survey. that explains how you can have the negative numbers from romney and have him going up in the poll compared to two weeks ago mpt. >> i want to go to candidate qualities thmpt president has leads on looking after the middle class, dealing with immigration and medicare. single digit on health care, being a good commander in chief, foreign policy and taxes. of all of those qualities, the two that would concern you the most if you were mitt rom

-convention and post a couple bad weeks for mitt romney and mitt romney at the nader of where he could possibly be in a race where you have the country as divided as it is. the fact that things are moving back towards at the national level, 49/46, i think should not be terribly surprising. i continue to believe the problem for mitt romney is not national polling. it is swing state polling. nbc/marist, you put out data this morning, close in several states but still in ohio, mitt romney down by 8 points among likely voters. i think that's very problematic for him. if he loses ohio getting to 270 electoral votes becomes not impossible but much more difficult. >> at the same time in the national poll, right track up to 40%, still not great, but it's the highest number we've seen in a number of years. this is better for the president. the enthusiasm gap still favors the president. >> yeah. the right track number i think is fascinating, andrea, because there's no obvious reason in the country in terms of economic indicators or anything else that people should be all of a sudden getting more

that mitt romney announced about the last five weeks. if you elect obama for the next four years, there will be no better than the past four years. i happen to believe that is true, but not very inspiring. it is hard to blame the guy. he wants to get reelected with a pretty narrow cast approach to democratic and independent constituencies. i do not think we will get the kind of framing you would like. i am a little less pessimistic. i do think reality matters. and we will hit a cliff and all kinds of ways. the fed cannot keep printing money and expecting the world to take it or buy treasury notes to fund trillion dollar deficits forever. the economy is slow and going into another dip. i actually think the next president will have a moment between november 7, and i do not know, this summer or fall of 2013 to do a lot. i would bet there is a huge legislative agenda in 2013. i did not really by the gridlock argument. if obama gets reelected, evil have a mandate basically -- he will have a mandate basically the lesser version of bowel- simpson. if romney wins, he will have a mandate

still remains below water, where more people have a negative opinion of mitt romney than a positive one. when you look and the mir's ballot standing, he went from five-point deficit two weeks ago to a three-point deficit now. we are seeing some tight thing in the race the totality of the entire poll, whether it is that 47% comment or what people have actually seen and heard about mitt romney the past two weeks was a pretty negative outlook. >> as i understand it and you've noted i believe in first read today this new romney ad, i want to play tax direct answer perhaps to those people in the public concerned about that comment. let me play it. >> more americans live in poverty than when president obama took office. we should measure our compassion by how many of our fellow americans are able to get good-paying jobs, not by how many are on welfare. >> so, how does that answer the statement he made at that fund-raiser? >> tamron, it is an attempt. in fact, his second tv ad we have seen, an earlier one was a minute tv ad this is a short 3er 0-second one, trying to do everything they can

to worry about. >> president obama and mitt romney will face off in two more debates, the next one is a week from tomorrow in danville, kentucky. president obama may be ahead in the polls in mean swing states, but nationally, the race for president remains extremely tight. the president leads mitt romney by 3% among likely voters. the poll's margin of error is 3.1%. so that puts the race in a virtual tie. the president led his republican rival by five percentage points two weeks ago. he has a much wider lead in you consider registered voters. president obama leads romney by 7% in that category. >>> mitt romney's campaign hoping to get a boost from comments vice president joe biden made yesterday. biden warned supporters in north carolina that romney and his running mate paul ryan would raise taxes on the middle class. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class has been buried the last four years. >> of course the middle class has been buried. they're being bear rayed by regulations, by taxes, by borrowing. they're being buried by the obama administration's economic f

candidates sweat a little bit. >> president obama was relaxed this week. mitt romney, too, but he knows he has to change perceptions tonight. more voters see romney negatively than positively, and that loses elections. >> only two presidential candidates in the last 20 years have had a net negative image at this point and one of them lost, george h. w. bush, ann romney needs to improve that dynamic. >> romney got good news from three battlegrounds. in florida, he is down only by one. . still way behind in ohio peeling -- in florida, he is down only by one. he is still way behind in ohio. in virginia, he is behind by two. >> the idea that i am anti- immigrant is repulse of. do not use a term like that. >> even barack obama can sound like a professorial know what all. >> i understand the broader point senator cohen has been trying to make for the last several weeks. >> 90 minutes, no breaks, a back and forth on domestic issues with possible fireworks. >> i think you'll see both of them be more aggressive than either of their campaigns have predicted, because the stakes are pretty hi

. the numbers in the new nbc poll are simply awful for romney. can you do anything in five weeks to negate their impact? >> you know, they have broken through -- >> oh, thank you. >> they've broken through. you know, this was a point in 2008 when something similar happened with john mccain. he couldn't recall in an interview how many houses or properties he owned. that became a sort of explaining narrative for all sorts of reasons why, and this may sound familiar, why he seemed out of touch. this 47% video resonated to a greater degree than john mccain not remembering how many homes he owned. so, if you have failed at this point to explain who you are, if you have another version of that story out there, you cannot undo it in one debate. you can try and engage with people directly to camera, but mitt romney is also going to want to land some punches. that's going to take time away from his job, number one, which should be telling people, for once, who he really is. >> i think that may be intentional. john, this is how romney's running mate paul ryan addressed the 47% comment capture

been tape of things that paul ryan and mitt romney have been saying within the past year. specifically when they are talking to conservative audiences. so two weeks ago, david corn and ryan grim at "the huffington post" posted video of romney talking to wealthy donors in florida. deriding the 47% of the country that he said did not pay federal income taxes and who were dependent on the government and victims and who he would never be able to reach because he would not be able to purr suede them to take responsibility for their lives. >> i'll never convince 47% of the country to take personal responsibility and care for their lives. those comments he describes his disdain for half the country, those comments have had a measurable impact on the campaign. in the new poll just released in the last couple hours, people say those remarks from mr. romney made them feel more negative than positive toward mr. romney by a 22-point margin. those results match other polling that shows those comments alienated undecided voters. regardless of what you think of the substance of that it

. romney is practicing at his colorado hotel, but he's been doing mock debates for weeks with ohio senator rob portman standing in as the president. >> i think romney has to throw the president off stride and get under his skin. maybe he mentions president obama's penchant for playing golf when the economy is souring. >> reporter: the president is prepping in nevada where he's said to be working on shorter answers and staying calm no matter what criticisms are leveled against him. >> basically they're keeping me indoors all the time. it's a drag. they're making me do my homework. >> reporter: joe biden and paul ryan don't debate until next week. so they're on the trail representing their campaigns this tuesday, biden in north carolina and ryan in iowa of jennifer davis, fox news. >> you can watch that first presidential debate on fox 5 at 9:00 tomorrow night live from denver. >>> a scare in the air for american airlines. passengers had a row of seats come loose in midflight. now the airline figured out why. will thomas is everywhere at 11:00. >> american airlines is responding. it
